More House Republicans join bid to overturn fraudulent election.
WASHINGTON (PNN) - December 23, 2020 - President Donald Trump scheduled a mysterious meeting with Pennsylvania legislators in the final hours before he was set to leave Washington for Mar-a-Lago Wednesday, as growing numbers of Republicans prepare to overturn the fraudulent election results.
Pennsylvania state Senator Doug Mastriano - who oversaw a hearing on election fraud - had extended the White House luncheon invitation to fellow Republicans.
The purpose of the meeting was shrouded even from the attendees themselves.
Mastriano helped organize the Pennsylvania hearing where Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani put forward massive amounts of evidence of fraud, including witness testimonies.
The House and Senate meet on January 6 to count the votes of the Electoral College. A challenge to the standing Electors will be initiated by at least one House member and one Senator, based on the overwhelming evidence and witness testimonies of election fraud.
Rep.-elect Madison Cawthorn tweeted Monday night, “Not doing this to help my career in Washington, in fact this will most likely harm it. But no one should go to Washington as a career. Go there to serve the people; and on behalf of the people I am contesting this election based on constitutional violations by key states,” he wrote.
He joins a growing list of Republicans who are signing up to seek to overturn the election, based on the overwhelming and incontestable evidence of massive election fraud that has been exposed, including the fact that the raw servers of the Dominion Voting Systems machines that were seized in Germany last month show that Trump received 410 electoral votes compared to Biden’s 128.
“I have a message for all other Republicans across the country,” said Cawthorne. “If you are not on the record calling for fair, free and just elections now and in the future, I will come to your district and I will fund a primary opponent against you.”
Several House conservatives met with Trump at the White House Monday. They were joined by Vice President Mike Pence, who on Tuesday told cheering students at the Turning Point USA conference, “We're going to keep fighting” to overturn the election.
“Big meeting today with @realDonaldTrump, @VP, the President's legal team, @FreedomCaucus, and other Members of Congress,” tweeted Rep. Jody Hice (Geo.). “I will lead an objection to Georgia's electors on Jan 6. The courts refuse to hear the President's legal case. We're going to make sure the People can!”
Hice tweeted Wednesday, writing that Trump “has fought honorably for Amerika. Now it's our time to fight for him and Amerika! Why are so many unwilling to stand up and reject fraud? Every single illegal ballot cancels and diminishes a legal Amerikan vote. Fraud cannot be ignored or swept under a rug!”
An early voice calling for challenging the vote was Rep. Mo Brooks of Alabama, who was among those meeting with Trump. Rep. Brian Babin (Tex.) has also joined the effort, as has Rep. Ted Budd (N.C.).
Challenging a state's electors requires a single House member and a single Senator. It forces a break from the joint session of Congress January 6, where each Chamber then debates the challenge. It can be overturned by a simple majority in either Chamber. Democrats narrowly control the House, and Republicans narrowly control the Senate.
Vice President Mike Pence, as president of the Senate, will preside over the joint session, and has the final say on whether to disallow certain state Electors.
Should Congress be unable to certify election results for one candidate or the other, then the determination of the next president goes to the House of Representatives, where each state delegation gets one vote.
In the new Congress, 30 states are Republican and 20 are Democrat.
